Can't wait to see what you think of the Kushiel's series, Nim. Be sure you tell me!!! I'd love to discuss it when you're done.

Susan: I finished the first Kushiel book yesterday, and wow... I'm jonesing for the second one now. Unfortunately the small library branch is closed until Tuesday. Elengil grabbed it, and is reading it now =)

Katrina: Thanks for running the Spring Reading Thing. It's a great excuse to tackle some books.

Caligula & Rea: Good luck with your own spring reading.

I'm impressed with how quickly you're going through your list. I've finished 3 of my 13.

Caligula: I was using the challange to only read from the pile of listed books with library trips to get the books in the kushiel series. We were in the car on the road alot so I was able to breeze through some of them really quickly...

Although I now have four non-fictions to read and write reviews on, so I'm not too sure when I will get a chance to tackle the two remaining books (and the few more older bookxing TBR's I've found hiding in the storage that I have easy acess to.

I'm up to 4 now. I could have had more read by now but I've been reading stuff just for fun too. It's the first time in a couple of years where I've been caught up with book rings and rays and have had the luxury to read things other than what I've signed up to read.

Hey Susan,

There is a new Kushiel Book coming out. Kushiel's Justice which deals more with Imrial's story
